How to Attract the Attention of Your Leo Crush

To catch the attention of a charismatic and larger-than-life Leo, most people have to step up their game.

Even so, there's hope for anyone crushing on that special Leo in their life. If you're looking to get noticed, start with these steps.

Shower Them With Attention

Flattery will get you everywhere with a prideful, confident Leo. They have huge personalities and are happiest when they're right at the center of a huge gathering, so it never hurts your chances to give them your full and undivided attention. They don't have time for subtlety, so flirt away, and play to their vanity by peppering your conversation with compliments. It might seem like overkill to you, but Leo will eat up every word.

Keep Up

When it comes to dating, Leo will only want most of the eyes on them. As much as they love admiration and attention, they'd also like the person they're with to be equally capable of captivating an audience. They're drawn to others who are similarly outgoing, with a charming personality and an eye-catching look, because they need to be with someone who can keep up with their lifestyle. If you think you can be the life of the party alongside them, you might make the perfect match.


Don't Play Hard to Get

Leo doesn't want to play games, and they won't waste time with someone who isn't clearly interested. Instead, make yourself available. They admire openness and honesty and can't handle wishy-washiness, so be straightforward with them and let them know exactly how you feel. They like someone who's not afraid to make the first move, and even if they don't already reciprocate your feelings, your boldness might help them see you a bit differently than they did before.

Remain Independent

Being flirty and complimentary doesn't mean hanging on to your Leo crush all of the time. While they do like to have a healthy dating life with a partner, they also want to independently be strong and functional, and for you to be able to do the same. If you need them around all of the time to be happy, a relationship will be difficult. By showing your confidence and strong will, you can demonstrate to them that you're willing to lead your own life. They'll also quickly get frustrated by jealousy. Leo typically is surrounded by adoring friends, so they will rarely be paying attention to only you. They don't have time to baby you, and they appreciate someone who can be self-sufficient.


Understand Your Worth

It's tough to fake self-esteem and independence, and a Leo can spot someone who's being inauthentic from a mile away. That's why it's so crucial to know yourself and recognize if you're not being real with yourself in order to get closer to your Leo crush. While the above steps can help if they feel natural to you, forcing yourself to act a certain way to impress them certainly won't. At the end of the day, the most important thing is to recognize your value and play to your strengths. There's nothing that can make anyone like you back, and the most you can do is to be the best version of yourself that you can.
